I studied History at the University of Birmingham and loved my course!
After University, I went straight into a job in Advertising. I had thought
about teaching and knew it would be something I’d enjoy, I just wasn’t sure
whether I was ready yet to have that career and wanted to explore other
‘exciting’ options. I worked in several advertising agencies in Account
Management, working for some of the UK’s top companies and some high
calibre brands such as Mars, Coca-Cola and BT. However, I did not feel
extremely fulfilled or excited by my job. I began helping at a local charity,
tutoring underprivileged students struggling with their GCSE’s. I fell in love
with teaching and explored routes into the career at a later stage. I trained
at one of London’s top State Schools, Mossbourne Community Academy
and am now in my NQT year at UCS Hampstead – absolutely loving my
job and it was the best decision I’ve ever made!
